  1. Hi

    I wonder if you may be able to help , I have a AFS matchless  G3  that I am trying to find the history on , I know from the matchless club that it was delivered to D60 Stratford Lancashire on 24/5 June 1953 as one of the first batch of  7 bikes  To be evaluated , i cannot find a Stratford in Lancashire or reference to D60 in the AFS ?

    any help would be really appreciated thanks mike

      Hi yes I live 6 miles from Stretford but the info I have been given very kindly from  a chap on this site says Stratford  in Lancashire 

      Stretford was in Lancashire in 53 before the boundary changes .

      the division is D60 which  I think is the key ,  I have found I think D63 which is Wigan again in Lancashire so it won’t be far away , I think it will be Stretford thanks for your help .

      Regards mike

  2. selling my lovely 1941 Morris PU project, i've very nearly finished her but another project forces a quick sale. its been a chassis up restoration, every nut & bolt changed and restored through out to very high quality. engine overhauled and runs things left to finish are wiring, exhaust, minor body parts need fitting. registering and enjoying............. give me a ring 07887473485 or drop me an email asking price £15,000
  3. The word is 'possible' it's far from easy, apart from all the obvious ancillary needs, fuel, coolant tanks etc it can't be run without a propellor or large 'flywheel' Running one of these is not for the faint hearted! But great fun and very rewarding. Jules

  5. Hi Jon I have restored two of these ! good luck regards Jules
  6. Peter If you want a steering wheel I have a good Humber one, plus other Humber bits (Sorry for hijacking your Morris thread Mike!) Jules
  7. Good to see you are still pushing on Mike, though I envy your weather, it's too bloody cold here to venture into the w/shop! Keep up with the the postings, it's good to see. Hopefully next month I will get my inspiration back to push on with the PU. Cheers Jules
  8. Hi Just ventured into the workshop and can tell you it is 1/2 inch or 12mm thick Sorry about the orientation
  9. Yes, the same Tom, or you could be really really helpful and knock up 3 sets for us!
  10. Sadly I have no side panels, for this CS8 or my PU project which has the same engine and layout. I'm going to have to manufacture two sets! Jules
  11. my 1940 CS8 has a tin foot well, wooden planks up to it then thin tin with the well inside it.
  12. Hi Charlie Yes, your right is was the same vehicle, being worked on by Rick W. Jules
